Blue Cat’s Late Replies offers a flexible approach to manage the delay time across its multi-tap section and feedback loops.
In this video Eli Krantzberg explains the base delay settings, and tells you how to use (or not to use) the grid and random functions to create in or out-of-sync delays. You will also learn how to link the taps and feedback loops together to quickly edit them all at once.
Got your copy of Blue Cat’s Late Replies? Not sure how to get started? Haven’t tried the plug-in yet and wondering why you would need yet another delay plug-in?
Don’t worry: here is a video that walks you through the main features of our creative delay and multi fx plug-in, with full details and concrete examples. Watch out! This may change forever what you think about a delay plug-in can do for you!
Blue Cat’s Late Replies Creative Delay and Multi FX plug-in has been granted an editor’s choice award by Pro Tools Expert.
“I really like it – it’s different. […] In 2016 Blue Cat Audio released Destructor, a very clever amp/distortion plug-in, and that changed things for me.[…] I’ve got the feeling that this is going to change the way I work with delays. […] This is a plug-in that can be as simple a you want it to be, or as complicated, which is quite nice. “
Check out the full video review below:
As announced earlier this week, it’s time for us to unleash our brand new plug-in, Blue Cat’s Late Replies, our craziest creation ever: a powerful multi-tap and feedback delay plug-in, combined with a multi effect (25 effects included) and a VST, VST3 and Audio Units host!
Out of the box, it is capable of a wide range of effects, from simple vintage tape delays to advanced loop patterns, reverbs, modulation effects and more (check out the examples provided with the demo videos), and it can be infinitely extended using your own plug-ins, even in the feedback loop!
We have setup an introduction offer until September 17th (25% off for new customers, and 40% off for registered customers – check your email!), don’t miss it!
You can download the demo to try the plug-in: it contains more than 400 presets to get you started! More details can be found on the plug-in page: Blue Cat’s Late Replies, the creative delay workstation.
